Kuchipudi Art Academy has come under scrutiny from the government for improper utilization of funds given to it. In a country where teachers and schools are placed in the same esteem as parents; one who gives them life and the other the art of living life, it was a matter of great shame when the news of misappropriation of funds by an Art Academy came into the forefront. Kuchipudi Art Academy has been charged with gross violation of annual funds allotted to it, the irregularities continuing from the past five years The annual audit report points to utilization of the fund in purchase of sitars, harmonium, table and other miscellaneous instruments apart from expenditure on development of infrastructure and other facilities. But the reality is far from it for, the students complain of leaking roofs and no proper existence of toilet facilities. Moreover, the instruments available are dilapidated and they are forced to shell out their own cash to purchase new instruments.The matter has gained significant attention and it is expected to be heard in the High Court in the coming month whereby it will seek to create a three-member committee to probe into the implementation of the allotted funds by the academy. Kuchipudi Art Academy is nothing short of a disgrace to the family of educational institutions in the country and strict action needs to be taken against the corrupt management of Kuchipudi Art Academy and an example made out of it.
